2 old potatoes (large)
4 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat the oven medium. Alternatively the cooking can be
done on top of the cooker, either in a heavy frying pan or in a
casserole which will resist direct heat. Peel the potatoes and cut them
into thick wedges. Pour half the oil into 4 individual
shallow earthenware casseroles or a small gratin dish. Put the
casseroles or the dish into the oven and leave until the oil is
Arrange the potatoes in the hot oil in single layer. Trickle on
the rest of the oil, sprinkle with salt and return to the oven.
Cook the potatoes until soft inside and crisp on the outside - this will
take 25-35 minutes. Mix together the paprika and cayenne and sprinkle
over the potatoes. Serve them hot in their cooking dish.
